  • Media Restore Pack for Vista NSKU 64-bit

    Heh, seems they did create a 64-bit version. After fiddling about a bit trying to install the XP version of Media Player onto Vista, Vista registered the fact that the installation wouldn't work and went to the update servers and pulled down the NSKU restore pack.

    So for someone reading this a few months down the line: Attempt to install "Media Player 11 for XP", this will trigger the Media Restore Pack update.

  • Media Restore Pack for Vista NSKU 64-bit

    The NSKUs of Windows Vista are shipped without Windows Media Player 11, and without any ability to install it even if you want it. Earlier this year Microsoft released the NSKU Media Restore Pack, which restored media capability to the N editions of Windows Vista. This update was provided through Windows Update, and was only avaliable to 32-bit versions of Vista N.

    Does anyone know when an update will be provided for 64-bit versions of Vista N?

    I'm beginning to worry that they will never release it, and working without it is extremly difficult. It's not that I miss Windows Media Player, the problem is that a lot of the programs I use need Media Player files to run properly.

    Also, since I doubt anyone can tell me when a 64-bit version of the restore pack will be released, does anyone have any ideas for a work around to get it installed without a restore pack?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks, I didn't know that you could use *.%filetype% notation in search. All installed now.

  • Remove Folders, Keep Contents

    Hey, I have about 3000 fonts, but each is in a different folder. I need a way in which to install them all as fonts without having to go through each folder.

    Is there a way to remove 3000 folders and put all the files in one folder. I noticed that when you delete a folder it says: "Delete folder and all its contents?". Can you; "Delete folder and keep its contents"?

    Alterternatively is there a way to install fonts by dragging folders into the fonts control panel?

    Great so far, few things though:

    1) Can you perminantly pin favourites center so that it always opens pinned?

    2) Icons bar sometimes seem to add a menu on the end and sometimes doesn't. The only way I can stop this is by adding a seperator at the end.

  • When you die

    First Level of Hell - Limbo

    Charon ushers you across the river Acheron, and you find yourself upon the brink of grief's abysmal valley. You are in Limbo, a place of sorrow without torment. You encounter a seven-walled castle, and within those walls you find rolling fresh meadows illuminated by the light of reason, whereabout many shades dwell. These are the virtuous pagans, the great philosophers and authors, unbaptised children, and others unfit to enter the kingdom of heaven. You share company with Caesar, Homer, Virgil, Socrates, and Aristotle. There is no punishment here, and the atmosphere is peaceful, yet sad.

    Lightroom hasn't been released yet, and Arperture does a lot of things Adobe's Photoshop does, especially in the area of digital photography/digital darkroom.

    I agree with Santosha, Photoshop is very different to Aperture. Aperture's main competitor is undoubtably Lightroom.
